In his late teens, Gecko discovered jazz. A true Dizzie Gillespie fan, he hitched across Spain with his best friend, following Gillespie on tour. He adopted his alias when he moved to London, attracted by the Jazz scene there. His friends in England interpreted his Spanish nickname Keko as Gecko, and adopted Turner moved by his respect for Big Joe Turner and Ike Turner, and his love of Kathleen Turner as a kid. When his mother died, he returned to Badajoz. He got a job at a bank and got married.

After his wife became sick and died, he returned to music. He says that after losing two important people in his life, he came to the conclusion that what you really love in life is what you have to do. Read more on Last.fm.
